SAN DIEGO – Adding a closets showroom or enhancing an existing one can go a long way toward closing and upgrading a sale. Kathy Morgan, president of Buckeye Custom Cabinets & Closets, will discuss the many benefits of investing in a showroom at the 2022 Closets Conference, April 27.
Buckeye Closets & Cabinets recently moved into a new and expanded showroom in Palmer, Ohio. The 2.000-square-foot space is co-located with Functional Living Design Group, a fully licensed contractor, that Morgan also co-owns. The new showroom features closets, kitchens, a home office, a pantry, and other vignettes to showcase the company’s work and inspire customers.
In a summer feature of Closets & Organized Storage magazine, Morgan said, that while having a showroom has always been an important part of her company as a visual display of its capabilities, the new, larger showroom also displays more function.
The annual Closets Conference is co-organized by Closets & Organized Storage and the Association of Closet and Storage Professionals.
Other Closets Conference sessions include:
- Opening Keynote presented by Laurie Haefele, Associate AIA, ASID, NKBA, of Haefele Design Inc.;
- Magic Numbers and Financial Impacts presented by Tim Coleman of SCE Unlimited; and
- Should You Charge Design Fees? presented by Karen Rolleri, chief organization officer and founder of Organizeology.
The full-day Closets Conference, which runs concurrently with the Wood Pro Conference, will be capped by a tour of a local manufacturing facility. The two-day Closets Expo, co-located with Wood Pro Expo California, follows on April 28-29 at the San Diego Convention Center. (View three-day event schedule.)
